Dee Teller #14 - Landscape Sumie

This landscape painting is the 14th in the series for the Asia Speaks exhibition by artist Dee Teller. Dee requested to have a very simple scroll design to show off the color and technique of the painting. It was done in the 袋表具 Fukuro Hyougu style and has a 1.5 mm border of black 筋 suji around the edge of the painting. The soft gray/teal color of the cloth seems to bring out the greens  in the trees and grasses and light blue colors of the water. The black suji really gives a lighter/darker/lighter/Darker pattern for the viewer.

The scroll is completed with a black lacquer wood jikusaki 黒塗り軸木. I really think this one matched the painting beautifully, and became one of the most beautiful paintings for the exhibition.
